Debian Installation

This is the latest patch (add NAPI to the network driver):
http://tinyhack.com/agestar/patch-2.6.25.4-for-agestar-20080621.bz2

I have uploaded the instruction on how to install Debian on Agestar NCB3AST at:

http://tinyhack.com/agestar/

I am also testing exposing my Agestar NCB3AST to the world, I have installed a web server on my device. The same information above can be accessed at:

http://irina.homelinux.com/

Please note that the later URL may not always available. First, my bandwidth is limited, and second, sometimes I still develop and/or test something on it that needs restarting the device.

  1. cdebootstrap has useful option: –foreign
    With it setup is more clean.

    My steps (for Lenny):
    1) (from Host PC) cdebootstrap –arch=arm lenny /mnt/debian-install/ http://http.us.debian.org/debian
    2) (from Host PC) Making devices as written in article
    3) Building and booting (via TFTP) kernel with boot options:
    console=ttyS0,38400 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10 rw init=/bin/sh
    4) Connecting to Agestar via serial port and running:
    /sbin/cdebootstrap-foreign
    It’s will work without any errors, but many “time on future” warnings.
    5) Flashing in mtdblock1 new kernel with boot options:
    console=ttyS0,38400 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10
    6) sync; sync; sync
    7) Turn off and turn on Agestar.
    System installed.

    Sorry my bad english.
